Startup Spotlight: Flur.ee

June 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

For our latest event in the Chicago Blockchain Center’s “Startup Spotlight” series, this month we are featuring FlureeDB.

FlureeDB is a modern graph database that leverages blockchain as a core element in its underlying architecture — and takes full advantage of its immutability to provide a practical solution for developers and enterprise wishing to build out decentralized applications. Using blockchain technology, each transaction within FlureeDB is time stamped and cryptographically secured as part of a continuous, chronological update to a digital ledger. The ledger may be privately held, shared amongst a consortium of entities, or publicly available. FlureeDB leverages the use of “Composite Blockchain Consensus,” in which developers can partition their data to lie on either a public, private, or internal blockchain, but join together to act as one database from an application’s point of view.

As a data-centric technology that first and foremost provides modern and familiar database features like Graph Query and fully ACID-compliant transactions, FlureeDB is unique and needed infrastructure solution for building out enterprise-grade blockchain applications at scale.

6:00pm – Check in
